MILWAUKEE -- Chris Young served up consecutive home runs to Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez in the fourth as Milwaukee took a 2-0 lead, but by finishing the inning, he reached 100 innings in a season for the first time since 2008. As pointed out in today's Morning Briefing (via the Star-Ledger and Record), he earns a $150,000 bonus for achieving that total. His contract called for a base salary of $1.1 million. He already earned $425,000 in bonuses for innings pitched and $750,000 in bonuses for games started.
